Digitalising Historic Correspondence

Linda Smith, Footpath Inspector, Cheshire West

This article is from Signpost 67, Spring 2021

I would like to congratulate the team that has been busy digitising historic correspondence relating to public rights of way in our various parishes - David Brown, Jeff Coulson Graham Smith, Geoff Jones and Paul Easthope.  This must have been a mammoth task, but it is essential that we are able to track past correspondence from the Highways Authorities and other parties when it comes to dealing with long-standing or difficult issues on our paths.  I have been assessing outstanding issues on some of my own routes and it was useful to look back to gather any relevant history.  I would urge others to look at the resource HERE and contribute to it with copies of your own key correspondence (to David at  dcb.pnfs.filing@gmail.com).   Acceptable file formats are PDF, JPG and TXT.  The name of any file should start with the date in the format YYYY-MM-DD).
